Hepatitis C Symptoms, Transmission, and Treatment Info

Hepatitis C (HCV) is a STD, but is typically contracted from blood transfusions and the sharing if dirty needles (both syringes and tattoo needles). HCV attacks the liver and has been known to lead to liver cancer, but usually is associated with severe cirrhosis similar to that seen in chronic alcoholics. HCV can be treated with antiviral medication as was the case with country singer Naomi Judd, but due to irreversible liver damage many sufferers such as singer Natalie Cole and actor Larry Hagman end up needing liver transplants.
